This collection of Simple Poems has been selected with the object of providing for the wants and capacities of the younger scholars in public and private Schools.

Great care has been taken to exclude anything of inferior worth, though this has not been held as a ground for withholding pieces whose veiy simplicity of thought and language are, themselves, merits.

The Compiler has been indebted to many sources, both English and American, and has been able to include some admirable pieces hitherto unknown in this country.
